This quarantine has left us with an abundance of free time that we’re killing by Netflix and Chilling. How about we use it to get new clothes? No we aren’t talking about shopping. We are talking about transforming your old clothes in a way that nobody can recognize.
It happens so often that we wear some clothes to an occassion and become wary of not wearing it again as we don’t want to repeat the outfit. Sometimes we simply get bored of an outfit. The clothes keep piling up and we keep spending our hard earned money on new clothes. But not anymore! Here are some simple DIY ideas to transform your old clothes into new ones with a fresh vibe.
Easy DIY Ideas To Transform Old Clothes
1. An Intriguing Art On An Old Shirt
We have so many shirts that aren’t worn out but we are too bored of them now. Well, you don’t have to do much to make them new once again. Just tap into your inner artist and get some fabric paints. You can create any artistic design on the shirt just like one shown in the image. The painting on this shirt is giving a modern look to an otherwise simple shirt.
2. Alter The Neck And Add A Belt For A Fresh Vibe
You can alter your old dress or a Kurti into a stylish dress by changing it’s neck pattern and cut it short. A lot of you might face this problem where the cut might not look too finished. You can add a lace to such unfinished corners and they would just look fine. You can also use the cut out part to make a coordinated belt to add to the fantastic look.
3. Quote Your Heart And Mind On The Clothes To Add A Personal Touch
Another amazing thing that you can do with fabric paints is use them to write quotes on your worn out clothes and give them a new look. You can write your mind or any quote that you love. It would add a personal touch to the design of the outfit. Checkout how the denim jeans in this image has been refurbished by adding a quote and some color to it.
5. Rejuvenate An Old Faded Denim Jacket
There are some clothes that get faded but have your emotions attached to them. You wish you could do something to make them better. Well, you certainly can. Revive your old faded denim jacket by dyeing it to another color. You can also make it look unique and stylish by dyeing just half of it as you can see in the image.
6. Give New Life To The Basic Backs
Looking for a dress with a stylish back but can’t find one? Create it yourself! Choose any of your old dress. Choose the one you’re less fond of if you’re trying this for the first time. Cut the back into any shape that you like. In case of dresses that have a zip at the back, you can just make it stylish by removing the zip and adding a ribbon at the top as you can see in the image.
7. Revamp An Old Gown By Cutting It Short
Spruce up the style quotient of your old gown by turning it into a dress. Just cut your gown short, remove the sleeves as well and alter the neck and the shoulder a little bit. You can also add a broad elastic belt with a mid cut to give the dress a proper shape or you can just accessorize the dress with a belt to minimize the hassle and it would work in the same way. Here the waist cut has been added to avoid any distortion in the long neck design.
7. From T-shirt To Tank Top
T-shirts are something that we wear everyday. We wear it at home, we wear it to the gym or while we jog or stroll around. They are one of the most comfortable piece of clothings that exists. However, we also get bored of them quite easily. So, to give your tshirt a different and sporty look, you can follow these steps.
